Five Ways to Stop Procrastinating


It’s funny but it’s not because it’s where a lot of us gets stuck and never move forward on that goal, project, or sometimes life. There are lots of reasons we get stuck but perfectionism is the biggie and causes procrastination. We come up with a million reasons why we can’t do “it” yet and we’ll keep finding a million more if we don’t just let go and take the next small step.

This post may not be perfect but I’m getting it out there for you and I hope it resonates and makes you post something you’ve been wanting to share because the truth is someone needs to hear it and they will only “hear it” from you. That’s why there are a multitude of people in the same profession…they all may be sharing the same general information but not everyone is going to really hear them.

I want to speak to the women who will “hear” me…Begin Here…Begin Now. Whatever that goal is take the next first step….post that image, write that blog, call that lead, send that email, put on those running shoes and step outside, take those frames to Goodwill so that you make the space to do your art…whatever it is do it now. I don’t care if it’s 9pm or 6am just do it. You will feel so good when you take the first next step that the steps after will just get easier and then surprise…you’ve reached your goal…Congratulations?

Contact me when you do please I’d love to share your success!
